Bored? Make a doo-wop song on an iPad like Kelly Clarkson, Queen Latifah, Jimmy Fallon

TwitterFacebook

Here’s a fun activity: Get two friends, a Looper app, and make a doo-wop song.

On Tuesday night, Jimmy Fallon dragged out live music looping app Loopy to create a doo-wop iPad masterpiece with powerhouse singers Queen Latifah and Kelly Clarkson.

Choosing classic tune “Earth Angel,” originally by ’50s group the Penguins, and popularized by Marvin Berry and The Starlighters in Back to the Future, the trio layer up some sweet, sweet harmonies, then some deep basslines, and a whole lot of bahp-bahps.

It’s damn delightful, and could be a pretty solid activity for your next bored night. Read more…
